Students Lead

students at the Youth Forum

Lead with courage, kindness, honor, and purpose. At Branson, students take risks, dive into new pursuits, and fuel their passions. Supported by faculty and staff, students are encouraged to explore beyond the familiar, to take on new challenges, and to be brave. Loud or soft, they find their own voice and their own unique style of leadership. They become the leaders of tomorrow – starting today.

Here, you’ll find myriad opportunities to get involved and to lead – in student government, in clubs, in affinity groups, and in many other activities that touch and influence nearly every aspect of our school. 

Student-Driven Leadership Opportunities at Branson

Junior Fellowships

Junior Fellowships and the In Pursuit of Science Scholarship are awarded annually to juniors through a highly selective process. Recipients receive project funding and spend the summer before their senior year out in the world learning alongside professionals in their chosen field.
